Welcome to Barley’s Angels Milwaukee!

Barley’s Angels is committed to involving women in the enjoyment of craft beer by creating environments where women can learn more about beer in a friendly, educational and supportive atmosphere. 

To find the most up-to-date information on upcoming meetings & events, check out our Facebook page.

Our meetings are held at various locations in the Milwaukee area on the first Thursday of each month. Our goal is to expose members to new bars and restaurants that are focused on serving craft beer. We usually start with a social hour at 6pm with the meeting starting at 7pm. Typically they will last 2-2.5 hours (depending on the presentations or samplings). Each meeting will have something different to learn!

Barley’s Angels is not just a social, beer-drinking club for women. Barley’s Angels respect beer and brewing, have a thirst for education, and enjoy beer responsibly.

We need your input – Barley’s Angels Beer Camp, Sept 23-25 at Lake Kegonsa State Park in Stoughton, WI

We are contemplating the first-ever Barley’s Angels Beer Camp – a weekend of camping and good beer at Lake Kegonsa State Park in Stoughton, WI.

The poll below is to gauge interest in the trip and the Sept 23-25 dates. Here’s how the weekend would work:

– The cost of sites and firewood would be split among those who go.

– We would ask that you pay a non refundable deposit (cost to be determined but we will try to keep as low as possible). This deposit is to cover the upfront site reservation fees.

– Everyone brings their own camping gear – tents, sleeping bags, etc.. If you don’t have a tent we will do our best to accommodate.

– We would do a bottle share each evening, so we ask everyone to bring beer to share with the group.

– As with all Angels events, this is for ladies-only (must be 21 and older).

Please provide your input below. If there’s interest, we will be sharing more info in the next few weeks.
